Grammar and Usage Lesson #35

CCSS.ELA–LITERACY.L. 1

Demonstrate command of the conventions of standard English grammar and usage when writing or speaking.

Vague Pronoun Antecedents


Three vague pronoun references have pronouns which do not clearly identify their antecedents:

1. Demonstrative pronouns (this, that, these, or those) are used on their own. Revise by adding a noun following the pronoun. Example: That is beautiful. That painting is beautiful.

2. Plural antecedents match one pronoun. Revise by repeating the noun. Example: He did have pens but we didn’t need any right now. He did have pens but we didn’t need any right now.

3. The antecedent is an adjective. Revise by changing the pronoun reference from an adjective to a noun. Example: I called Jesse’s work Jesse at his work, but he never answered.
